Hey Guys,

Newbie just getting into this and planning a display for 2022.  I am eager to start testing things but from what I can tell all the controllers I am planning on running my display with are out of stock.  

With that said, I have some pixels coming this week (5V bullets) and would like to at least test them and start playing around with setting up a controller in XLights to help with the learning curve.  Does anyone have a cheaper option and or know of anything in stock that I could use to play around with while waiting for the controller I want to come back in stock?  

Thanks in advance.

I am sure they will be available sometime after the beginning of the year unless something else happens.

There are pixel testers available and you could also get something like the K4-PB from KulpLights.com and the PocketBeagle from WiredWatts.com.

You don't have to have the actual controller in order to configure xLights.
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.

I would not purchase any thing until you have setup and used xLights for awhile. There is a good chance what you think you need now is different then it would be after using the software.

Thanks.

I had been looking at getting the K8-PB from Kulp but never looked at the stock he had, just went by what wiredwatts said that they didn't have inventory.

Board ordered from Kulp, PB and other items ordered from wiredwatts.

Thanks again.
